The governor on his part said Amaechi was a failed governor who needed psychiatric attention. 

The governor said Amaechi’s invitation of the military to provide security cover was a ploy to rig the elections.

Wike, who spoke through the State Commissioner for Information and Communication, Dr. Austin Tam-George, said Amaechi was plotting to cause anarchy in the state

The governor appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari to call Amaechi to order.
